    From this lovely Asian fabric, I've tried to create a picture - of rock pools surrounded peonies and cherry blossom - carp playing in the whirlpools!

    It is quite big (65 ins x 56 ins) so it was difficult to get a good photo and I eventually ended up with it on the floor.

    The fmq "rippling water" in the borders looks light but is actually a variegated blue, and the fabric is darker than the photo shows it.

    WOW! I will admit that I would have not even cut the fabric up. I would have just sandwhiched it and handquilted around all of the designs so that it looked like hand applique. Your blocks are fantastic. It is beautiful fabric.

    I always love the colors in the Asian fabrics but not necessarily the Asian art look. This totally changes it up. Just beautiful!

    Love the way your quilt turned out. Especially like the carp swimming out of the pool into the border. Great job!

    That is gorgeous! I especially like your FMQ in the borders - such a great feeling of gently undulating (how's that for a word!) water.

    love it. I think large Asian prints are perfect for this technique.

    Awesome quilt.

    This turned out beautifully! I love the carp swimming away and sashico quilting in the border is the perfect fina touch, you thought of everything.

    Absolutely stunning. I've never tried OBW, but might have to after seeing yours.
